For me one of the easiest foods you can switch out and make homemade instead of buy is granola. It takes just minutes to prepare and you have an over abundance of granola at your disposal. Since homemade granola makes a ton I’m able to freeze half so it doesn’t go bad.
This newest granola recipe I made is peanut free since I used almond butter. To make it even easier I used a bag of Woodstock Hiker Harvest trail mix instead of using individual dried fruits. This recipe only has 6 ingredients and you can easily add others to the recipe to make it suitable for your family. Woodstock Harvest has tons of snack varieties and spreadable options for you to choose from. Heck, even check your pantry. I bet you have enough ingredients on hand right now to make your own delicious granola.
- 3 cups oats
- 1 bag of woodstock hikers harvest trail mix
- 1 cup almond butter
- ¼ cup raw honey
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
- In a small saucepan heat almond butter, honey, and coconut oil heat until all ingredients are incorporated and smooth then take off heat.
- In a large bowl add oats and trail mix
- Add wet ingredients and mix until oats and trail mix is coated
- place mixture on a lined baking sheet and bake for 10 min on 350 then toss mixture and bake for another 10 minutes
- let cool then add the mini chocolate chips
- Store in ziplock baggies or containers in the freezer and take out the amount you need
We love this granola recipe because it’s so versatile. You can eat it with yogurt and fruit as a breakfast or afternoon snack.
Serve it with milk and have it as cereal, my boys love to top their oatmeal with granola.
Even eat it plain. If you leave bigger chunks of granola then it’s super easy to throw into your bag and eat on the go. We travel a lot especially in the summer so it’s a perfect take along snack.
